Question Body Wraps?

Okay, we are toying with the idea of body wraps. Does anyone do wraps or have you done them? Opinions, suggestions, comments?

Re: Body Wraps?

I have been doing spa services for just over 15 yrs, and wraps were very popular in years past. They claim to lose weight, reduce cellulite, ect, ect. The industry in general places no validity in these claims, even though they still are being touted as "new and inproved "B.S.
That said, you can ethiclly offer services like body scrubs, and soothing body gloves, both are effective and show almost instant results!! Do your research and go with a reputable company thats been around for awhile, as the newbees are here today gone tomorrow. And be a savey shopper as pricing can be staggering for each treatment. Also you may need a dedicated room for such services, which means higher costs for you as well. Good luck, hope you sort it all out!!!

Re: Body Wraps?

I have tried one of these wraps, I did recieve resluts and we were considering adding this feature to our Salon. Although it seems that you need to be consistent with these to actually recieve long term results. Glad to see different views on this topic! I am not sure if we are actually going to go with it. We are going to have a group of people who are interested in trying it out come in and go from there to see what people have to say.

Re: Body Wraps?

I added them in 4 months ago and couldn't be happier. I became a distributor so I make the retail plus commissions. My clients love them and the fact they can be done in salon or at home.
I tried the infra red wraps at my salon about 8 years ago, not so thrilled.

Re: Body Wraps?

The results one gets is with the "it works" wraps is that they don't work. Being a dist. gains you nothing if there isn't the repeat business. Been there done that.

Re: Body Wraps?

How long did you sell them for? I'm finding tons of repeat no and referrals and new customers.
